IR filter on Sony F-3
on Apr 18, 2011 at 8:12:35 am

Hello all,
we are going to shoot with Sony F-3 a TV drama that will shoot outdoor most of the time, we will use ARRI/Zeiss high speed T1.9 lenses and shooting a lot with height ND filters, is anyone has any experience shooting with F-3 on this conditions and is the F-3 is suffering like the Alexa and the Sony EX-1/3 from Infra-red visibility and we are have to use a Infra-Red filter?
please advice, thanks Yaron.

I can't imagine any IR issues with daylight, I take delivery of my F3 in a few days and while at NAB I was working at the Convergent-Design booth and playing with their F3 I was thumbing threw the menu I noticed an ND Adjustment. I asked the Sony boys and no one really knew what it was for, finally someone thought it was a way to adjust the iso. I just looked up the manual online and this feature wasn't in print. So perhaps we can dial back the iso with this feature and not use as much ND glass out in front of the lens.

There might be IR issues using tungsten lighting indoors and having a filter ready would be great.

Good Luck
Michael Palmer
